It starts with an original name, "The Restaurant". Located in Flesherton in Gray County, this eatery is attached to a Knight's Motel. Flesherton has several interesting food shops including a terrific cheese shop, a deli, a grocery filled with local products and a Saturday Market featuring local foods and alpacas. The Restaurant is attached to the modest motel, and is itself unassuming but functional and clean. The owners are friendly and amusing and the clientele is unusually varied, as the place attracts seniors (lots of canes visible), high school students and rambling tourists of all stripes. On our first visit we met a couple from Iowa who had stopped in for a night and stayed for a week so enraptured were they with the food, motel and village ambiance. The food is mixed with a wide menu of large portions including fries, burgers, sandwiches, and other standard fare. But we have never tried these pleasures, because The Restaurant also features many Indian dishes, the owners are Indian, and these dishes, at least all we have tried are wonderful. The lamb curries are my favourite, but spiced chicken, spicy vegetable medley and roasted spiced eggplant are as good. There are still many more to try. The plain rice floats off the plate, and the naan is quite simply the best I have had. And the house wines are more than adequate, well above expected. Prices are modest (our last visit meals and wine for two plus two takeaway (Indian) meals and starters (we were greedy) came to $49), service is friendly and helpful and the other guests are endlessly fascinating to observe and speculate about. It is often hard to imagine how such customer diversity comes to the same place. The starters reflect an attempt to satisfy a wide range of tastes, including spring rolls, perogies, samosas, onion rings and quesadillas. All in all a rewarding experience. Best to call ahead to make sure it is open, it operates every day but with slightly complex hours, and we were warned that it might be less fun when the local students come for lunch. To top it all off, at least in spring and early summer, Mennonites tether their horses in the parking lot and sell delicious maple syrup at rock bottom prices. One can't ask for more.
